Adventures in Geocaching! What I love about these guys is i'll target some geocaches, park and get them, then bing my gps says closest cache is a cap!

I was doing some caching with fuzeebear today and he had a schedule, but once we got back to the vehicles, I had a cap as closest cache. Parting ways, I walked the 200m up to the cache spot.

Ack, another one covered by a manhole, I'm 2/3 for being able to open these without needing special tools. Today luckily im now 3/4. Wow is that a big hole though, and nothing but dirt at the bottom. I wandered off into the bush to find a stick and hopefully find the cap, and luckily it was only a few mm buried. After cleaning with the stick a bit, I tried to reach down and clean it off a bit with my fingers, unsuccessfully, this hole is deeper than the length of my arm.

I delved the camera down as far as i dared and grabbed a pic of what i'd exposed of the cap, but i couldn't read any numbers from my pictures.

BUT on top of everything, a nice lady saw me lying on the ground (with my arm down a hole) and thought i was in distress, so stopped and asked me if she could be any assistance. I explained that i was exploring a survey marker and thanked her for her concern, I'm surprised in today's society that someone would do such a thing. :)

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on
